Joel Katz Smooth Jazz is the perfect background music for conversation and socializing at your function, reception, gathering, and dining. The concept is popular recognizable songs arranged in a smooth grooving style. A simple elegant recorded backing track accompanies guitar performances. Outstanding musicianship and sound quality are the keys here, performing with a vintage Gibson Jazz Guitar and a superior Martin acoustic guitar. Hawaiian Lap Steel can also be included.
For piano performances the most realistic electronic piano made is used if an acoustic piano is not on location. Piano arrangements are in a beautiful soulful flowing style.
